PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida teenage girl has been arrested on an aggravated assault charge after, police say, she chased children with knives.

According to a police report, the 16-year-old girl told the children to stop playing in front of her apartment, but the children ignored her. The teen then used an 8-inch knife to chase them away.

The report states that when the children returned, the teen chased them with a 10-inch knife.

The girl told investigators that she was joking with the children.
